Publisher's Summary

Isobel MacEwen is sent as her cousin Catherine's proxy to marry Conlin de Braose, Baron of the Cinque Ports. But several months before she leaves Scotland, and on the same night that the baron's ship is docked in port, she is a witness to the murder of their Scottish king. Or almost a witness. From her hiding place on that stormy night, she only sees the murderer's shoes as he walks by. Isobel's weakness is shoes. She loves shoes and notices not only everyone's shoes, but the way they walk as well. And now a pair of shoes is the only clue to what really happened that night.

Lord Conlin de Braose of Sandwich has made an alliance with Laird MacEwen to marry his daughter, Lady Catherine. He's never met the woman, and little did he know at the time of the agreement that she was known as the Shrew of the Scots. But Conlin has a young daughter he needs to think about since his wife's death. She needs a mother, and he needs the alliance to protect his lands - and so he must remarry.

But on the day that his betrothed comes overseas to meet him, a storm takes the ship and Conlin rushes to help. The bounty he pulls from the wreckage is a woman - his betrothed's cousin and proxy - Isobel MacEwen. The woman is beautiful, but seems a bit addled because of her infatuation with shoes! And when Conlin falls in love with the proxy, he realizes he is in a horrible bind.

Can a baron of the Cinque Ports keep his alliance to ensure the safety of his daughter and his people? Or will he risk all and break that alliance to be with the woman he loves?

Fun and romantic.

Which character – as performed by Brian J. Gill – was your favorite?

Narrator Brian J Gill stepped up his game in the narrating of this book. He really embraced the author’s emotions in his performance. He was tender and emotional when called for and strong, even hilarious as the story dictated. He truly brought this story to life. I want to see this in all of his performances and will be listening. Excellent narrating Brian.

The Baron’s Destiny
By Elizabeth Rose
Narrated by Brian J Gill
What a Delight!
Author Elizabeth Rose writes such a fun story. She pulls in lessons on loss, manipulation, courage, inner strength and love in this amazing and fun story. I found myself relating to Lady Isabel in many ways. And I loved her shoe addiction and definitely can relate to that. This story had me laughing out loud, then feeling strong emotions for Lady Isabel as she comes to the realization she is simply everyone’s puppet. Then we move into her acceptance of that and determination to change this and be her own person. I loved this story from the first word to the last. An absolute joy to read. I highly recommend it.

Mystery

Conlin doesn’t really want to get married, but he will for two reasons: an alliance with a Scottish Laird and to get a mother for his rambunctious daughter. The second book in The Barons of the Cinque Ports Series is a page-turner. There is the mystery surrounding the murder of the Scottish king. Isobel, the heroine, has a shoe fetish and a talent for identifying people by their shoes and the way they walk. There is a marriage by proxy. Lady Catherine, who is supposed to be Conlin’s wife, finally shows up, but brings quite a surprise with her.

Elizabeth Rose is a wonderful storyteller. In The Baron’s Bounty she blends romance, mystery, and adventure into a story that hold the readers attention from the first page to the last. Brian J. Gill’s narration is excellent. He is quite talented with different dialects. I enjoyed listening to him read this story.

An entertaining shoe collection

Very entertaining and witty with Isobel's shoe fetish making me laugh out loud at times. The mystery of the suspected murderer just adds to the suspense and kept me listening until the end. Highly recommended!

Fun Story

A fun, engaging storyline about two characters who manage to overcome the crazy predicaments they keep finding themselves in while learning to love the other person for who they are.

Ups and Downs!

When Isobel is put in a position that is really terrible for her by her cousin, she stays agreeable and when the baron is stood up, he takes revenge on Isobel. It is fire and water that make an explosive combination that is a wonderful read! Brian J Gill is GREAT as a narrator. I like that he reads normally unless he is "speaking" for one of the characters. I loved this book!!!

The Barons Bounty

It was great,I loved the story and the characters so much.this girls addiction to shoes was hilarious ,I laughed so much when she was hiding them in places and then it rubbed off on the barons daughter and just spiraled. Oh and that scene from the woods with his squire,hilarious. This was a new author for me and now I'm addicted to her books. FIVE STARS
